Stock rear control arm "orientation"?

I'm replacing a stock bent rear LCA with a stock rear LCA from a 2012, and the bushings have different stampings than the one being replaced.

One end has a 45, the other end has a 43.

Anyone know which end mounts to the axle, and which mounts to the frame, or if that's even relevant?

Thanks!

I pulled out my spare arms to look at the bushings. Mine don't have those numbers. But The rear LCA are not bent like the upper ones so I'm sure it does not matter. I also measured both ends and they are the same, 2-1/2''.

This is something I've never paid any attention to when it comes to rear lowers, either way shouldn't make much of any difference. If any at all...
